Series 2 - Lesson 11 - Annotation 5
What is righteous judgment and what effect does it have on the organism of the person judging righteously?
5. Righteous judgment is actually the right use of the judgment faculty, or judgment from the law of Absolute Good. By making a practical application of the law of judgment in our own life, we cease faultfinding, criticizing, condemning, dictating, and judging others by our own limited concepts of right or wrong. Our organism is thus freed from the snares of the limited, personal expression of the will faculty which has held the body and its functions in bondage. The result is that the more abundant life flows from the depths of our being to the outer or the physical organism. As we broaden our vision, see, and judge according to this broadened vision, we not only bring about wholeness in mind and body but help to raise the whole race consciousness, the accumulated thoughts and beliefs of all mankind.
